Many elementary school curriculum programs encourage kids to read narrative nonfiction (writing that tells a fact-based story) and informational texts. You can inject more facts and concepts into kids’ “reading diets” by enlisting the help of treasured storybook characters.
A newly-published series is Curious George Discovers, in which our beloved monkey learns all about the sun, our senses, rainbows and more.
Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library is a series of nonfiction picture books featuring everyone’s favorite feline. Through funny and friendly storytelling, your child can learn about chimpanzees, reptiles, butterflies and trees, accompanied by the irrepressible Cat.
A standard in this genre is The Magic School Bus series. In the classic picture books, your child can take a trip inside a beehive or explore the human body with Ms. Frizzle and the gang. If your child is ready for chapter books, continue the adventures with Magic School Bus Science Chapter Books.
Take the time to grab some of these great titles to share with your child. You will be amazed at the facts and concepts that will be absorbed while just enjoying an adventure with some favorite characters!
